“Sky View is as good a football team as we will see all year,” said Bountiful coach Larry Wall. “They are loaded on both sides of the ball and execute real well. We will have our hands full Friday night.”
Bountiful enters the game after thumping rival Woods Cross, 33-0. The game with Woods Cross was one where Wall felt the team began to jell in all facets of their attack.
“We did a lot of good things on offense and we shut them out on defense so that was good,” Wall said. “Another area that I thought where we looked much better was on special teams.”
Bountiful kicker Joe Lake is adding his name to a long list of successful Braves kickers as he connected on a 44 yarder and nearly cleared the uprights on a 50-plus yarder.
“The kicking game is very important and I see Joe getting better each week,” Wall said. “The overall execution of the kicking game from the linemen to the snaps and holds and kicks are all improving.”
While the Braves may have played their best game thus far, Wall is not ready to have he or his team relax anytime soon.
“Coaches are never satisfied,” Wall said. “There is always room for improvement. We watch film and we continue to see little things that maybe we didn’t catch during the games that we can work on. The guys are excited to keep improving.
“All of the games are important,” Wall said. “But now we’re deep into Region 5 play and it adds to the importance of each game.”
